A Case For Secession

The Macroview Blog makes a good case that secession can be good for all the parties involved, at least the way I read it. There shouldn't be a need for any gun play if all parties voluntarily go their seperate ways. Which got me to wondering, and I don't think I can come up with an example: Has there ever been a case of a country booting out a smaller part of it as I've suggested the U.S. do to California? 

I'm coming up blank. It seems the rule is for countries to try and assimilate more property.

There is no way the U.S. would willingly loosen its iron grip on any part or parcel of its empire without military action. If we are to attempt secession, we should expect an attack from U.S. forces. This, of course, would probably spark the new civil war that some of us have been expecting and preparing for.

Let's do it!

They're just trying to save face. They have already forfeited their standing in the Union & are facing severe fines & consequences for voiding their contactual agreement with the Union. They shouldhave exited, then defiled the contact, but they chose to defile the exit.
Anyone who is familiar with contractual law knows there are severe penalties when the contract is defiled.

Where on Earth to run to after parting ways........seems American Gubbamint staked claims all over the planet.....

Further that would be a terrible decision by the United States to just let California go....... the Earth spins such that the sun rises in the East and sets in the west....... the Earth spins such that the prevailing winds run from west to east........ things like that make it impossible to allow California to secede politically.

Ya think the California politicians already enjoy trying to control the whole country and whine that Hillary lost even though California is what helped Hillary win the popular vote....... do you really think California politicians would be for seceding..... after all that power would they have over the rest of the nation......

Dont need another jewish state, good grief.

There are historical examples of secession, and examples of countries giving chunks of itself to other countries as part of a deal.

There are no examples of a country 'booting' out a chunk of itself to force independence. The idea flies in the face of power theory, which is to say, controlling more land and resources provides more power, and the aggregation of power has been a driving force throughout our recorded history.

The Oath of allegiance to the Constitution was taken in order to become a State of the Union. Before they were a State, they were a Colony. The Land was held in trust by the Central Government. Maintaining the Oath to the Constitution maintains their State's powers. Disrespecting, voiding, their Oath to the Constitution, returns their status back to that of a Colony. The other State's in keeping with their Oath, are duty bound to strip Traitorous States of their Powers, lest all States fall victim.
A State is a Country. A Colony is not.
They can also be brought up on charges of Treason. Sued for Breach of Contract. Stripped of all entitlements, possibly & most likely, including the land & it's resources.
The land inhabited by the Colonists before Statehood, would be exempt. All other lands would return to the trust.
Contracts. The Constitution is a compact between the States.
The Oath of Office all officials must take isn't jut fairy dust. It is serious.
I'm not a lawyer, but if I void my contract, I lose my home, car, business & perhaps citizenship. Everything returns back to the grantee.
Had Calif not breached their contract, they would retain their Power as a country, to do their own thing after all proper contractual obligations were settled is speculative. The Contract specifies why & how colonies become states. Youare either a State, or you are a colony. As long as you are a State, you must abide by the Contrat, the Constitution.
This post may be hogwash, but it might not be. Who is to decide the outcome of Treasonous behavior?
This is going to be fun.
